Veterans Health Information: VA Announces Expansion of Virtual Lifetime Electronic Record

“The expansion of the VLER pilot program will allow more Veterans and facilities to participate in this exciting new technology,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. “I invite Veterans to sign up for the program. It will keep health care providers informed, improve continuity and timeliness of care, and eliminate gaps in health care information.”

This pilot expansion is designed to share Veterans’ health information electronically, safely, and privately between VA, Department of Defense (DoD), and selected private health care facilities that are members of the secure Nationwide Health Information Network.

To find out more about VLER, Veterans may call the toll-free at 1-877-771-VLER (8537).
